Itinerario

Day 1: Marrakech – Imlil - Imi 'Oughelad
Transfer from Marrakech to Imlil. You will start your journey with a climb! Not a tough one, but good enough to put pressure on the pedals to make sure everything is working. At the top of the pass (2300m) you will stop for a mint tea and biscuits before heading for the first real singletrack through the villages of Tacheddirt, Tamguist and Amssakrou. This is a good, flowing singletrack for a couple of hours which will end at a riverbed for lunch. After a good, long and lazy lunch, you will be ready to take off again. A short climb turns into a single-track descent. At the end of this technical singletrack descent, we’ll stop at Imi Oughelad where you will spend the night in a berber guesthouse.

Day 2: Imi’oughelad – Id Aissa - Ouirgane – Marrakech
After breakfast you will leave Imi Oughelad following a sandy road that climbs steadily and full of zigzags. You will enjoy a very nice view over the Ait Mizan valley as well as the neighboring valleys and all the small passes on the way up. You will continue to the Tacht pass where you will stop for drinks and some nuts. You will then keep riding along the Azzaden valley on single track passing through several villages to get to Ouirgane. You will have lunch and then be tranferred to Marrakech. .

This is the last day on the bike and possibly the best one! You will start with a gentle crossing and climb to the head of the pass.

From here the singletrack is fast and flowing to start and as it drops in, height becomes more technical into the riverbed. One of the sections of singletrack runs through a dry riverbed. From slow, super technical to smooth and flat out and everything in between! This continues for hours, without a letup anywhere.
